  Usage scenario: This method is not used in special cases。


  1.SWB is a ship's bill of lading, somewhat similar to telex release。Once confirmed as SEAWAYBILL, the agent will deliver the goods directly to the consignee upon arrival at the port。

  2.In case of telex release, even if the goods have arrived in Hong Kong for a long time, as long as the shipper has not notified the agent of shipment in writing, the agent will not ship the goods to the consignee。

  3.The main difference between SWB and B/L is that SWB does not have a certificate of title。A bill of lading is a document of title that can be endorsed for transfer.。The sea waybill is non-transferable and the draft of the international sea waybill can only be made to the consignee indicated on the sea waybill。
